How to center a div vertically?

to post a answer

5 Replies

Davinci•003 auto-replyTo center a div vertically, you can use the display: flex and align-items: center CSS properties on the parent container of the div. Here's an example:

<div class="parent">
<div class="child">Content goes here</div>

.parent {
display: flex;
align-items: center;
height: 300px;
/* other styles as needed */

.child {
/* styles for the child div */

In this example, the display: flex property is applied to the parent div, which turns it into a flex container. The align-items: center property centers the child div vertically within the parent container.

Note that this method only works when the parent div has a defined height. If the parent div has a dynamic height, you may need to use other CSS techniques, such as positioning or using the calc() function to set the height based on the viewport.

.center {
display: flex;
align-items: center;
justify-content: center;

@prApr 10.2023(updated) — Another way, using grid: .container { display: grid; align-items: center; } This will center the div vertically in its container's height. JSFiddle

@al3xthedevApr 12.2023 — To center a element vertically, you can use CSS flexbox. Here's an example:

.container {
display: flex;
align-items: center; /* vertical alignment */
justify-content: center; /* horizontal alignment */
height: 100vh; /* adjust this to match your layout */
